on the beat, they're the ones who have to deal with it. mayors in cities like new york and elsewhere have participated in things like gun buybacks where you offer people a little bit of money it encourages them to bring in their guns. you have about as many guns as people. programs like this or other ones, have to find a way to just get some of the stock that's out there off the streets and either destroy it or get it back in the law-breaking -- nonlawbreaking hands. >> eliot: the 300 million number is obviously the one that is the center of the debate. do gun buybacks, do it alone stop and frisk which is sometimes a topic of substantial conversation from the civil rights perspective. these are critical ways to recover guns but if every gun you get off the streets that an illegal gun can prevent a crime. do we need to put $5 billion into gun buybacks that will do more for safety in our streets than anything else the way australia did, not that number but proportionately. is that something we should say to the federal gov

of bill will be joined bygesman steve israel from new york. richard maxwell e-mails in hey bill, all boehner & company want to do is protect the obscenely rich probably because they will be needing a good job when the people of the country realize how they have been taken by the super rich. mary ward says please explain how filing income taxes could become problematic if we don't resolve fiscal issues. impeach bainor. could we do that. >> too many support the shenanigans and those who are willing to refuse bread for themselves because they fear a black man may eat from the same loaf. this man says bill press you are an idiot. i would explain more but being such an idiot >> it would simply be a waste. just live with the knowledge that you qualify. please tell me more. >> this is "the bill press show."

of new york, why do you care about this stuff? >> why is the murder rate around the country? i'm an american. what's your question? >> why is this mike bloomberg's crusade? >> i live in america! and i'm a human being. i don't know what your religion teaches you. mine teaches you to take care of each other. in america read the constitution. we're all equal and we're all americans. >> bill: bloomberg says basicically, get out of here asking me a question like that. he points out, you know, he has been very critical of president obama saying look, it is up to the president to lead on this with a specific proposal so that he will put forward and fight for. he promised to do that in tucson. >> the president spoke out on gun violence after the mass shooting in tucson two years ago. since those shootings happened, more than 24,100 americans have been murdered with guns. >> bill: and we've done nothing about it which gets to the question -- that's the question. is the president showing enough leadership on this i

a lot of attention. we're doing the new york city food marathon. the 22.6 dishes in 24 hours. it's absurd, of course it is, but it gets people interested in food who otherwise would not have any interest in food. >> cenk: how dofood. >> gavin: how do you make better scrambled eggs. >> add more yolks. that will give you a dense creamy scrambled egg that tastes like you almost put cream to it, and lower temperature than--cook at a lower temperature. then the next--you have an extra egg white. then you experiment adding an extra egg white. that gives you a fluffy texture like in an omelet just by changing the ratio. >> gavin: what was the most enlivening in your perspective. wow, if i had only known 20 years ago this--was there a particular recipe or approach to cooking or style that distills some of the premise and some of the core? >> i'll give two things. the first is just how contrarian some of the best solutions are. you hear cooking the best steak. you bring it to room temperature, sear it and then cook it. if you do the exact opposite, take the steak and put it in the freezer

? joining me from new york to discuss that is katrina vanden huvall, the editor much "the nation." welcome back inside the "room"? >> the election, you know, the election, seems to me it was a rejection of denialism, extremism, of intolerance. the heritage foundation represents all of those, and i think heritage was influential, really, in the reagan years, maybe a little bit in the bush years. but it's lost some of its luster. partly because the republican brand is staina stained brand with a shrinking base. >> let's hope it's lost some of its luster. do you think, though that someone like jim demint again, newly fired up and perhaps now on a mission could restore the luster of something like the heritage foundation? >> you know i don't see a new -- him newly fired up. i see him newly expelled. he took himself out of the running but, you know, look at what's happened. all of what he stood for has been rejected. obamacare is the law of the land. he fought against that very hard. he fought against reproductive rights. he fought against gay right
